Department Of Urology at Al Hilal Hospital

August 10, 2022
Urologists are the surgeons who treat problems involving the male genitourinary tract and the female urinary system. Although urology is a surgical specialty, a significant part of urologists’ appointments involves the medical management of conditions without surgery. Urology patients vary from babies to the elderly. A urologist known as a genitourinary surgeon concentrates on analyzing and treating diseases of the urinary tracts of females and males and on the reproductive system of males.

Urologists manage conditions involving the kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate, and male reproductive organs. For example, common infections in the bladder include stones, tumors, incontinence, and erectile dysfunction in men. They also manage impotence, sterilization, and male infertility.


The department of Urology in Al Hilal Hospital is regarded as one of the best Urology hospitals in Bahrain, with a legacy of excellence and innovation.

We provide the following services and treatments:

  • CYSTOSCOPY: A cystoscopy is a technique that allows your doctor to inspect the lining of your bladder and the line that carries urine out of your urethra. A hollow tube with a lens is inserted into your urethra and gradually advanced into your bladder.
  • URETERORENOSCOPY: Ureteroscopy is a method that utilizes a ureteroscope to peek inside the kidneys and ureters.
  • URETERIC STENTING: A ureteric stent is a flexible, thin plastic tube curved at both ends to evade harming the urinary bladder and kidney and control them from dislocating.
  • LASER LITHOTRIPSY FOR URETERAL STONES: Ureteroscopy with laser lithotripsy is utilized to smash up kidney stones that were not handed and remain nestled in the ureter. During this process, a laser ray is used directly on the stone to break it into small pieces and give easily.
  • LASER LITHOTRIPSY (RIRS) FOR SMALL KIDNEY STONES: This procedure refers to surgery inside the kidney with a viewing tube, better known as a fiber optic endoscope. Recent technological strides in this field make it possible to implement Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery (RIRS) to manage kidney stones.
  • CYSTOLITHOTRIPSY FOR BLADDER STONES: It is a surgical process used to cure bladder stones, which are hardened residues of minerals that can form inside the bladder. During a cystolitholapaxy, a cystoscope device is inserted into the bladder to locate the bladder stones.
  • TURP FOR ENLARGED PROSTATE: TURP is a surgery used to treat urinary problems caused by an enlarged prostate.
  • ORCHIDECTOMY: This is a surgical procedure to remove one or both testicles. Providers use this procedure to treat and prevent testicular and male breast and prostate cancer.

Apart from the above-mentioned, Al Hilal also does surgery for varicocele, hydrocele surgery, circumcision, EIU for ureteric strictures, uroflowmetry, orchiopexy, vasectomy, and Epididymal cyst excision.
